Note: A few of the items we tried at a later date were provided to us complimentary of Disney. As always our thoughts and opinions are our own.
Sebastian’s Bistro at the Carribean Beach Resort in Walt Disney World is a tranquil dining spot. This restaurant was added to the resort as part of the Carribean Beach Resort extensive overhaul. And I just need to stop and say, my oh my do the new changes at the Carribean Beach look amazing. Let’s take a look at our full Sebastian’s Bistro dinner review.

A Tour Around Sebastian’s Bistro
A look at Sebastian’s Bistro at the Carribean Beach Resort in Walt Disney World from the outside.
We arrived early to walk around and check out all the new stuff at the resort. I was impressed that we were immediately greeted by a cast member. She was quick to help us with menu questions and book us a reservation. This time we already had one and they were able to take us in early which was great since we were starving!
Once inside you will find the place covered in beach decor. I loved the amazing windows and the light and airy feel inside this restaurant. My favorite detail is when you first walk into the entrance it’s covered in a wall partition buoys.
Also, take note of the beautiful cushioned fabric chairs. This is not a common finding in restaurants at Disney World. It was perfect for relaxing and taking in the beautiful water views. I also really enjoyed the modern vibe of the very coastal feel inside.
The beautiful wooden bound menus feature the crustation the restaurant was named after Sebastian. I also like to point out they kept the Little Mermaids nods in the spot very subtle.
Here is a look at the menu from our visit but be sure to look up the menu use the link above. Especially with this being a recently opened location I expect they may make some menu modifications.
Dishes from Sebastian’s Bistro
Here is a look at the dishes we tried from our dinner at Sebastian’s Bistro.
This is what I label as a dangerous drink. See the umbrella? That is the tip-off! This is because it’s fruity and you would otherwise never have any idea there was alcohol in this. On the menu, this is called Hoist the Colors. The drink is a mix of Cruzan Mango and Guava Rums, Bols Blue Curaçao, and Odwalla® Lemonade with Pomegranate Juice. It was very yummy and I thought had almost a grape flavor to it!
This, folks, is the highlight of the meal. I think you will be saying the same thing after eating here. So the bread is pretty straightforward but the sauces are Guava Butter, Mango Chutney, and Jamaican Jerk Oil. Guava butter is the clear winner of the three options, my husband and I were fighting over who got the knife next. The other two dips are interesting. I really liked the seasoning of the Jamaican Jerk oil and was a hard pass at on the fruit dip funny enough my husband thought the exact opposite.
The crabcake appetizer here is two thumbs up! It was nice and light. I always find the pitfall of a crabcake is when they add too much breading to the mix. There were also some large chunks of crab waiting inside the cake.
I ordered the Jerk Chicken which is served with Black Beans and Rice and Marinated Vegetable Ribbons. The chicken is full of flavor and wasn’t overly dry. I must admit the rice wasn’t really the best, I thought it was overcooked and overly dry.
This is the Grilled Skirt Steak “Chimichurri” as with anything smothered in chimichurri it was excellent. I was surprised to find how much I loved the Yuka that was served with this. It’s basically like a glorified tater tot.
The Banoffee Tart was my favorite from the trio I tried. It’s a Banana Custard, Chocolate Ganache, and Caramel Sauce.
Sebastian’s Bistro Review Recommendation
I am not sure if it just quite because it was recently opened or not I will have to go back but we loved the atmosphere here. Based on our experience it was the perfect spot to stop in for a quiet and relaxing meal. It wasn’t overly loud and the tables were nicely spaced out versus the crammed in nature of Le Cellier Steakhouse at Epcot.
Our selections for dinner were straight from our amazing helpful waiter. We were super happy with everything she recommended to us. The service was perfect, super helpful and personal without going over the top. We never once felt rushed here, in fact, we were highly encouraged to stay for some dessert but we just couldn’t fit it in.
I think this choice is best for those staying at Carribean Beach Resort. It was good but wasn’t so amazing it deserves a long trip out of the way to eat here. We gotta preserve that park time so you can get in as many rides as possible.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
